Priest Lake is 10-miles long and surrounded by State and National Forests offering a myriad of year-round recreational opportunities.  With its 72-mile shoreline, seven islands and miles of public white sandy beach, Priest Lake beckons for exploration.

In the summer season, visitors explore the lake by powerboat, sailboat, canoe, kayak and waverunners. If fishing is your forte, Priest Lake is renowned for its trophy sized lake trout (Mackinaw).  In addition to water sports activities, miles of hiking and biking trails surround the lake.  These trails present a wide variety of terrain options as well as spectacular views of the lake and the Selkirk Mountains.

The world famous Priest Lake huckleberry creates much ado in the late summer followed by fall mushroom forays in search of the 45+ species present in the area.  And those with extra energy hit the green at Priest Lake’s newly upgraded 18-hole golf course.

Priest Lake is also a popular winter recreation area, boasting 400+ miles of groomed snowmobile trails and over 500,000 acres of public land for off-trail riding.  An ever-expanding cross-country ski system also attracts numerous Nordic enthusiasts.  Six separate trail systems totaling over 70 kilometers are suited for all levels of expertise.
